A bit of process work on the reptilian illustration/collage:
– the original illustration
The original illustration was designed for a woodcut print, and later a linocut. It was also used as a book cover for a collaborative project between G. Arthur Brown and Zoltan Komor (which may have shown up in a Hungarian newspaper). The mixed media collage version resulted from me wanting to remake the image to fit the kind of work I am now producing. Mock-ups, or what I refer to as sketches, are usually produced to figure out placement, colors, and source imagery selection.
